Q&A with Singer, Song Writer and Model Nicolette

It’s always a good idea to get out and shoot with someone. Get out and enjoy the weather, Enjoy the sights and sounds of life. I linked up with one of my favorite models Nicolette for a photoshoot for the blog. For those of you who don’t know her true passion is actually singing. And I’m here to tell you she can really SANG. In the middle of our shoot I wanted to ask her a few questions about singing to understand how she feels about it on a deeper level.

Thertee Seven Blog: When did you realize you had a gift of singing(when did it hit you like I can really sing)?

Nicolette: I realized I had a gift in elementary school. It was my first time performing in front of a crowd. My two sisters and I choreographed a routine to perform 3LW’s song “No More”. When I got that rush of being on a stage, singing my heart out and seeing the amount of support from the crowd, I knew that this was the career I wanted to pursue. I knew that THIS was my gift.

Thertee Seven Blog: Who inspires you (and why)?

Nicolette: My inspirations stem from a collection of people. Anyone in the realm of blues, soul, R&B, Hip-hop and funk inspires me. From James Brown and Jr. Walker and the All Stars to Jill Scott and Musiq Souldchild to Amy Winehouse and Haitus Kaiyote– I’m inspired by many people of different genres. It’s because of the FEELING of their music. They inspire me to create music that people can FEEL.

Thertee Seven Blog: Where do you see things going with your singing career?

Nicolette: Honestly, I can’t determine the outcome for my singing career. All I know is that I want to make a name for myself in the music industry, be successful at it financially and just be happy doing what I love to do every day, sing.

Model Natural for Maximum Authenticity

I love a good candid shot, capturing the moment as it was intended. Being posed by the photographer usually takes away from the moment. I prefer to give direction of some sort and leave it up to the model to interpret the natural motion.

If you look at the above picture the fingertips are a little blurred. This is due to the model Kengi in the process of a natural hand movement, it fits the shot. Along with the lens being a fast lens with a Fstop of 1.45.6 Kengi (29)-Edit.jpg5.6 Kengi (35)-Edit.jpg5.6 Kengi (39)-Edit.jpg

Talking while shooting is highly important, for one it feels awkward taking pictures in silence. As you can see from the above picture Kengi’s smile is a direct result from conversation we had while shooting.5.6 Kengi (47)-Edit.jpg5.6 Kengi (43)-Edit.jpg 5.6 Kengi (54)-Edit.jpg
